ANIMATING THE FUTURE

We are always looking for new opportunities to collaborate and can be hired for animation work and services. Our Curiosity180 brand is an in-house project that also reflects our capabilities. Hit the buttons below the laptop based on your needs and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

Teachers need to integrate technology seamlessly into the curriculum instead of viewing it as an add-on, an afterthought, or an event.

We found that students of all ages were turning to online videos for their education. Online videos were offering a more personalized way of learning, allowing children or students to learn at their own pace. We wanted to capitalized on this opportunity and create animations that would allow people to learn new things at a comfortable level.

Thus, Alien Animation was born. We wanted to become an ambitious animation studio that promotes curiosity, awareness and justice through the power of simple, interactive and captivating animations. Alien Animation creates animated shorts that break down important issues, depicts critical concepts and delivers an easy to understand message. We work with anyone that has a vision and concept that needs to be shared with the world.

How did LIFE begin on earth?

Episode 10: Two popular theories on how life was created on earth are...

1. The Primordial Soup Theory suggest that 3.8 billion to 3.55 billion years ago life began in a pond or ocean as a result of the combination of chemicals from the atmosphere and some form of energy to make amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, which would then evolve into the first species on Earth.

2. Panspermia, the theory that life on the earth originated from microorganisms or chemical precursors of life present in outer space and able to initiate life on reaching a suitable environment.

Tardigrades can withstand...

1. Temperatures from 1 K to ~420 K
2. Tardigrades in the tun state could survive a pressure of 600 megapascals (MPa). At these crushing pressures, proteins and DNA are ripped apart!
3. Ionizing radiation hundreds of times higher than the lethal dose for a human
4. Vacuum of outer space
5. 30+ years without food or water!

Why do we have CRUSHES?

Episode 9: Having a crush on someone is very similar to being addicted to drugs. The limbic brain, the same part that gets addicted to drugs is responsible for the feelings you have when you develop a crush. Our limbic brain hasn't evolved since two million years ago; therefore, the kinds of things that we normally find attractive have not changed since then.

It's tough, asking a person to get over a crush is like asking a heroin addict to quit. It really is not that easy. Once your limbic system is used to the regular level of dopamine coming in, it's going to make you do things; whether you like it or not.

Asian Flush and CANCER

Episode 8: Asian flush, also widely known as Asian glow happens to certain people of Asian descent after they have consumed alcohol. The Asian flush affects about 36% percent of Northeast Asians, primarily Chinese, Japanese and Koreans. The Asian flush is due to the body detecting a threat and triggering an immune response. When people drink alcohol, the liver has to break down a chemical called ethanol. The liver does this using two enzymes, ADH and ALDH-2. However, the problem arises when people have a mutated ALDH2 gene. As a result, people with this mutation accumulate a toxic substance called acetaldehyde at a level about 6 TIMES HIGHER than normal people.

How to AVOID a Bear Attack

Episode 7: The chances of being killed by a bear while visiting the Yellowstone National park is 1 in 2.1 million. The good news is that it is not likely that you will be killed or attacked by a bear. However, for those unfortunate people with extremely bad luck, here is a video on how to avoid bear attacks.

Assuming a brown bear has not yet attacked and slapped you in the face, you should slowly and quietly begin backing away. If a black bear is about to attack you, well... then wipe those tears off your face and get ready to fight for your life.

Some myths and misconceptions:
1. Grizzly bears cannot climb trees? FALSE, both grizzly and black bears can climb trees.
2. Bears cannot run downhill because their front legs are shorter than its hind legs. FALSE, bears can outrun you no matter where you try to run, don't believe us? Go run away from a bear downhill and see for yourself.

How does the INTERNET work?

Episode 5: The internet is an awesome and sophisticated platform, but it actually isn't that complicated to understand. When broken down to its simplest form, the internet is just a series of systematic steps to ensure that people get what they are requesting. So that when you are searching for cat videos on YouTube, you actually get cat videos and not videos of WWE Wrestle-mania.
